Amy Segars started this petition to Stop the Rendering and

The purpose of this online petition is to oppose the construction of a Pilgrim's Pride poultry rendering / pet food manufacturing facility at the proposed Georgia State highway 320 & I-85 property as posted by the Franklin County Planning and Zoning. This location is centrally located between the communties of Bold Springs, Double Churches, Red Hill and the City of Carnesville which could impact many home owners, tenants, churches, and businesses along with the three schools within close proximity. These rendering facilities has the potential to produce foul odors that can spread for miles, increase nuisance insects, consume large volumes of water which in turn generates vast amounts of waste water that will have to be treated so there is no potential to pollute the Middle Fork Broad River, Broad River Watershed and local National Protected Wetlands. This exposure could endanger property, fish and wildlife locally and many miles downstream.

This project has been negotiated behind the citizens of Franklin County backs by our local elected politicians, and the Franklin County Industrial Building Authority (IBA). As all is aware, it's not a secret anymore. Now they are being  asked to answer for their actions and lack of concern for "us" the local taxpaying citizens. It appears the Franklin County Board of Commissioner's (BOC) along with the IBA thinks the objections are few and this project will outweigh the community's/citizens concerns. It is our belief that they feel this is only controversial to a minority in the area and we are a temporay hindrance to swept under the rug.

Please join the efforts in this unnecessary fight to help preserve our county and our current way of life or we will all suffer the consequences for decades to come. Our children, our elderly, our families, our way of life, business owners/ operators and communities deserve much better than this proposed rendering plant. It is time to remind our elected representatives who the work for, and that we dont need another nightmare like the Georgia Renewable Power plant. By signing this petition you agree with the listed context. 

Thank You to all for helping the cause to save our County and  the enviroment!
